The Republic of Kars is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Robert Belikraft with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, sprawling nuclear power plants, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.478 billion Karsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Old Dour. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 85.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Karsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,496 trillion cooples a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 231,059 cooples, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 775,477 per year while the poor average 51,091, a ratio of 15.2 to 1.

Female brains are believed to heat up dangerously when 'overclocked', the nation frequently scolds its subject territories for staying up past bedtime, disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, and exiled racists are enjoying their retirement in exotic lands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Kars's national animal is the rooster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Grafism.

Kars is ranked 137,898th in the world and 6,132nd in The North Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 42.15 Insults Per Minute.
